Dont confuse Crazy with Stupid

Einstein said "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results"

That seems kind of insulting to insane people. In fact it sounds more like stupidity to me. Actually it is the common love child of stupidity and laziness.

Once upon a time I used to just hear my friends and family bitch and whine. Thanks to the advent of social networking now I get to hear EVERYONE whine.

My teachers hate me
My boyfriend keeps banging sluts
my job sucks
my kids don't listen
No one but me does housework

I could fill this whole blog post with examples but  there is no need. if you are intelligent enough to have mastered literacy you can probably think of a hundred examples all on your own. As if anyone cares.

Now there are times the universe truly screw you and I am all sympathy then. You got Parkinsons ... man that sucks. How can I help.  Your kid has a brain tumor, I'm here for ya. House burnt down, I have an extra room. Your Boyfriend is out banging sluts AGAIN while you are home with the kids. Nah that's your OWN stupid fault for putting up with his shit.

See people like to bitch and moan about how hard life is but rarely want to DO anything about it.Yeah change is a lot of work but nothing in life is free.

Are you really stupid enough to think if you just wait like a good little girl (or boy) that everything will change and come up roses.
Wishing upon a star never made a woman less of a victim. I tire Iron can but not a wish. 
Waiting for your good Karma to kick in so you can get a better job? Yes I would like fries with that.

If you want a better job then DO SOMETHING to earn one. 
If you want more money DO SOMETHING to earn it.
If you want to be treated with respect DO SOMETHING to earn it
If you want your kids to behave DO SOMETHING about it

For fuck sakes people this is not a hard concept. Is this where participation medals and 'everyone is special' philosophies have landed us?

In the era of the Internet! Finding a solution has never been easier. You don't even have to leave your home.

Stop asking when things will start looking up for you, and start climbing! 


  1. I have found that if a person is constantly complaining about things, nothing at all can solve the problem. It doesn't matter if they fix things for the better or not.

    The only thing a person can do is change their outlook on life. They need to look at the positive instead of the negative. Everyone's life has aspects of it that such, and if thats what a person focus's on, they are forever doomed.

    Instead they need to figure out whats positive in their life and focus on those things. It makes one a much happier person in the long run no matter where life may take them.

  2. I agree that outlook can go a long way but it is hard to be happy in life when you are allowing things you can change to make you unhappy.

    There is not a lot in my life that I actively try to change because I am relatively happy with how we live. My biggest issue is looking for long term financial stability but I am actively pursuing a solution to that

  3. Well written! I like! Always learn from your mistakes (and others) and if you don't like something use everything in your power to change it and if you need help changing it there is always someone willing to help, all you need to do is ask! :-)
